SPIRITUAL PATHS AND DISCOVERY OF
important teachings on perception and on the workings of the mind and emotions that added
much depth to my meditation. Krishnamurti wanted
to create a teaching that was universal, that was not culturally limited or conditioned,
and did not require any identity in order to follow. While this was a noble endeavor it
failed to note the organic nature of life.
refusing to align with any tradition his teaching became limited to perhaps the most
limited factor. It became a one man teaching or one-man tradition a Krishnamurti
teaching. All tradition is not bad. Otherwise we should leave our infants in the woods and
let them raise themselves without authority, tradition or interference. We all follow
various traditions in life. We are part of a society and a collective evolution.
We as individuals dont invent our own language, much
less our own spiritual teachings. We have to take the good that the collective culture
gives us and carry it further along.An authoritarian tradition that does not allow open
questioning but projects a dogma as truth is certainly harmful.
